WELCOME!!!

Now you are on every forum I am...kinda freaky. (ClubGP, W-Body.com, and now this one)

TGP = Turbo Grand Prix (I think they only made them in 1990 and 1991. Some had Getrag Manual trannies )
Yup, that is what a TGP is, except, they were ONLY available with the automatic. The Getrag'* are all conversions. There were only 3 options on a TGP, CD-Player, Sunroof, and Leather. They were only available in Black or Red, and they were only made in '89 & '90, and there were something like 6000 of them made in both years combined. (I have heard all sorts of numbers, but these are the most realistic ones I have heard) TGP'* are very nice cars, it is unfortunate that my dad uses ours as his winter beater/bad weather car.

Quote:
The rims on my car now are the 16'*, and they're silver.
So, you don't have the factory wheels anymore? I am pretty sure all TGP'* had Gold Crosslace wheels.

Quote:
Your the second person I heard that has thi 160 T-stat. I want one!
Well then, maybe you should go buy one...they are seriously like $10.

Alrighty, so the new Bonnie rims will bolt up fine, but is the offset the same as well? I know on Grand Prix'*, the 97-02 rims would not fit on 89-96 GP'*. They would hit the calipers....so you'd need wheel spacers. I'm not getting those.

For the bonneville rim swap, the 92 is the same basic chassis and wheelbase, so it SHOULD be ok. I'm not aware of anyone that'* done this yet, but it'* easy enough to find out. Somebody pull a wheel for her and measure the offset!

Welcome TGPgirl!

This is a really good question to get answered. Tam/Drifter/Hailey/Jstpsntym/2k guys (a bunch with nearly the same names..) Can someone pull a 2k-up wheel and measure the offset from the back of the lug plate to the rim? We can do a comparison and know the answer for eternity.

Anyway Welcome and I was also thinking about doing that (wheel swap, and lower profile tires) so any info from the '00 owners would be great!

How about I do one better for you and put a wheel from the SSEi on the TGP? I will try to do that for you and let you know how it fits.
